FTP Overview

FTP Overview

You can configure a session to use File Transfer Protocol (FTP) to read from flat file or XML sources or write to flat file or XML targets. The PowerCenter Integration Service can use FTP to access any machine that it can connect to, including mainframes. With both source and target files, use FTP to transfer the files directly or stage them in a local directory. Access source files directly or use a file list to access indirect source files in a session.
To use FTP file sources and targets in a session, perform the following tasks:
  1. Create an FTP connection object in the Workflow Manager and configure the connection attributes.
  2. Configure the session to use the FTP connection object in the session properties.
